I can’t believe it has already been four years since the walk-on freshman Taylor Wyndham laid out the Heisman candidate Tim Tebow one night in Lexington. Wyndham, now a senior, will be one of our captains leading the Cats onto the field today. Last week Taylor recorded a career high seven tackles in the loss to Western. But there’s only one tackle I care to see today. I just want to see him lay a hit on Jeff Driskel like he put on Tim Tebow. With that said on to some game day links:
-The Cats are back on the gridiron today as number 14 Florida tries to extend their winning streak. Both Florida and Kentucky have done the majority of their scoring in the second half to this point in the season so today both teams will be looking to get off to a fast start.
-So what do the Cats have to look forward to today? “We’re going to get a bunch of big, angry guys over on the [defensive] side,” was one of the quotes from Randy Sanders. Florida features two projected first rounders, hopefully Max Smith and the line can stay out of trouble.
-While Kentucky may be on the wrong side of the nation’s longest winning streak last years game against Tennessee does provide some hope. In order to do that though there is no way the Cats can keep giving up 399 ypg.
-After a four interception game last week it is a good thing that Max Smith has a short memory. His ability to move on has him sitting at third in the nation in completion percentage.
-Cal rushed back from the recruiting trail to get back to the Big Blue Madness campout. Cal set up speakers and grabbed a mic to address the crowd in a speech that punctuated the campout.
-The biggest story out of the ticket line was the Nerlens Noel dunk/wipeout. The story has been featured all over the web making the front page of Yahoo as well as a write-up on CBS in addition to several other web sites. Only at Kentucky could a botched jam result in such coverage.
